For this post, I kept the same make up on for all three looks, but changed my hair and top.
Why? Because I enjoy having a good play with make up (made especially worthwhile now I have somewhere to dump the results — *waves to you, dear reader*) and I desperately love taking photos of myself. Sorry not sorry.
The first, hair inspired by the Suicide Squad promo photos that I can’t get enough of:
Second, retro Miley vs. Lizzie McGuire.
And third, an everyday, more-put-together look with my new favourite top.
I can only hope you enjoy this half as much as I did creating it!
A how-to for the make up –
I opted for my Neutrogena oil-free moisturiser as a base, and used my fingers and then buffing brush to apply Rimmel’s Lasting Finish foundation. With my contour palette, I used the darkest brown to hollow out my cheeks, which I then, quite ferociously, blended out. I also used the darkest brown to contour my nose: down the sides, and at the front to make the tip of my nose less pig-like. I used the white to highlight the point of my chin, cupids brow, and tops of my brows.
I used ELF’s mineral blush in ‘joy’ on my cheeks. ‘Feeling Younger’, a skin tint by Lush, was used as highlighter on my cheekbones (this product absolutely deserves its own review, it’s magnificent).
I used both a blonde and brown eyebrow pencil to fill in, shape and lengthen my eyebrows. Both pencils are by Maybelline. Smashbox’s brow tech gel was used to keep them sharp and defined looking, and to make sure they stayed put.
First I used L’Oreal’s super liner in Blackbuster to line both my top and bottom eyelids and to give colour to the bases of my lashes. I used the Collection palette, as seen in this post, to create a high-shine look. I used the silver as both base and highlighter, and used the brightest navy to fill in my lid.
I used the baby blue as blending glue — the colour that holds the shades together. The navy was also applied along and under my lower lashes, as you would when creating a smokey eye. Masacara was 17’s Blowout. I used Silky Girl’s Funky Eyelights Pencil in Electric Blue to line my top lash line.
Final step? Stop, drop, selfie! ..and then, uh, edit.
Love ya! xx
